Look, it’s pretty difficult for anyone to go through getting fired from their job much less having to talk about it. I get that. But Joe Morgan’s response to being removed from ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball coverage is, well, exactly why we all wanted him gone.
SbB Live shared with us Morgan’s response to losing his job (via the New York Times): “I was not surprised by ESPN’s decision. They have been taking ‘Sunday Night Baseball’ in a different direction the last two years and I was not comfortable with that direction.”
Just like Joe to make this about him. See, it was his decision, not ESPN’s for him not to return. Joe was not comfortable with ESPN’s direction. What direction was that, towards the truth? Towards analysis that makes sense and doesn’t include fibs? Analysis for the enlightened baseball fan? This guy is unreal and his smug attitude makes me even more satisfied we won’t have to put up with him any longer.
